The car has a slight stutter when idling in drive, shifted to neutral its almost nonexistent, also I noticed the lights dimming. When I'm giving a lot of gas the rpms go way up with no power produced, actually it goes slower, accompanied by a rattle noise I think is coming from the front passenger side of the engine area, the temp gauge sometimes will rise as well but it will cool if you let up on it. I don't really have a lot of ca$h to be putting into parts, so I'd like to get this right the first time if possible, also I recently had replaced, a bad battery, injectors, crank sensors, fuel filter, oil change, and a/c compressor.

P.S. I just did oil change last month, and only drove about 1,700 miles and the car is low on oil right now

Check belt and tensioner as replacement is recommended at 60k. Have coolant system checked for a bad radiator and or head gasket.
